Lakeville man killed in Fall River highway crash

SE Mass

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — One person is dead and another was seriously injured in a multi-car crash on Route 24 in Fall River Tuesday afternoon, according to Massachusetts State Police.

The crash occurred just before Exit 1B on Route 24 northbound around 2:30 p.m.

Police said the driver of a Ford pickup truck was traveling southbound when, for reasons that remain under investigation, he crossed the center median and hit a Chevy Silverado that was traveling northbound.

The driver of the Chevy, identified as a 35-year-old Lakeville man, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Police said the driver of the Ford, identified as a 28-year-old Tiverton man, was transported to Rhode Island Hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

An SUV was also involved in the crash. Police said the driver of that vehicle, a 26-year-old Fall River man, was not injured.

Both the northbound and southbound sides of the highway were reduced to one lane for a couple of hours, causing significant backups in the area. The road has since been reopened.

The crash remains under investigation at this time.
